First game of Warhammer Underworlds with the new Gnarlwood rules, Ironsoul's Condemnors vs. the Shadeborn!
I used Battle Mallet's suggested Nemesis deck (https://www.battle-mallet.com/nemesis-decks/) for the Condemnors because it turned out the one I had put together a while back sucked, and it was very fun, but ended up very one-sided, oops. It was partially due to some lucky rolling on my part, but we called it half-way through the second turn out of three total because I'd wiped out @yayKM's warband entirely and the score was already 9-5. Fighter of the match goes to Brodus Blightblade who single-handedly killed two of the four enemy warriors outright (the first one in the first activation of turn one) and did two out of three damage to a third one that allowed me to ping that third one for an extra one damage to kill him.
I really like the new rule changes for activations specifically, and the Nemesis format is great.
First game of Warhammer Underworlds in a little while, the vampires of the Crimson Court vs. sneaky aelves of the Shadeborn. It was a very low-scoring game, I won with the Court 9-7 but on THREE separate occasions @yayKM needed to roll a critical success (essentially rolling a 6 on one single D6) or one of her characters would die, and she managed it all three times.
I took Khorne's finest for a spin tonight, and while they ended up winning 14-5 (and are quite fun to play, to boot!), at the start of the last round it really could have gone either way. My leader had one single wound left and I had several things that relied on him being alive. 😬
Mid-week gaming this week was a FOUR-player game of Warhammer Underworlds! Unsurprisingly we only got through one round, but one of the players hadn't even played before. I managed to eke out a win on 8 glory, and Kristina came back from nowhere to finish on 7.
Well, I might have done a fantastic job painting the miniatures, but good god was the standard deck that Skittershank's Clawpack comes with rubbish. I couldn't do half the stuff, scored all of 2 glory by most of the way through the second round, and we gave up at that point.
Fortunately Kristina said the Shadeborn deck was a lot of fun, so that's good at least. I'll need to pull the Clawpack deck apart and make it better.
Games Workshop released new some paints in their Contrast paint line earlier this year, and they've got some new formulations that mean they can do REALLY pigmented paints. I picked some of them up and am using them on the Shadeborn, and oh man, that purple in particular. 😍
